The most interesting article is this one. It shows how musicians life are changing because they cant make money off music like they used to. Piracy has beaten all artist by allowing people to download music for free. I actually agree that the Music Industry is dying do to piracy and its hard to actually make a living with music. But on the other end music will never die as long as consumers can still listen.
If you're among the roughly 15 percent of people who vowed to get fit this January, you've probably been looking for the perfect soundtrack to help you stay in the zone on that treadmill or swing that kettlebell through one more set.
Gabriel Alejandro Del Valle's insight:
In this article is basically talking about the most popular songs to workout in. It says having a song you like on actually motivates you to do more in the gym and make it easier for you. I really dont see any Cons with this because this is more of a personal reference. The Pro is it actually list some good songs that you might never heard of. The top song to workout in is Eminem Ft Rihanna Monster.
The question is can you draw music. Well Apps for Education replied with a yes by creating and app that allows you to create a sound by using your fingers. Using all your fingers creates a sound which you can combine together and make a song or beats. I find this really cool and creative specially for someone who loves music this could be really usefull. The bad would be maybe not all people know about or they wont use it more than once. The good is that you get to create a sound which to many people that could mean a lot. My opinion is as long as the App stays Free for consumers than its something you can look up into.
Spotify on Wednesday announced that its lifting all limitations from its free desktop version, allowing users in all countries where the service is available to listen to music for as long as they want, and play their favorite songs for as many...
Spotify is allowing users all over the world to listen to music for as long as they want and play their favorite song as much as they want. There trying to make music more assesible to people all over and bring them together with Spotify. The good thing with this is of course you can listen to anything you want but also as long as you want. The bad would be that some other music streaming sites will have to adjust to Spotify to not loose customers who actually pay for the songs. My opinion is, this is actually pretty great because music should not be price to listen in a website, if you want to carry your music on you then it should have a price.
Jimmy Iovine’s music subscription service Beats Music is launching on January 21, according to New York Times. Basically this will be a new way to stream music threw your phone, or computer. It will allow you to play your favorite songs threw a subscription. The Con is that this will be another website such as Pandora, Itunes Radio that also allows streaming music. The Pro is that the people behind this are actually pretty famous (Dr.Dre) and maybe that will boost popularity for the customers to buy. But im also against paying a subscription to listen to music because Pandora is a free service and Itunes Radio is also free.
The mayor of Dushanbe has banned "non-traditional" music from the Tajik capital's buses. The ban includes Rap, Rock. They say this promotes violence and sexual content and thats why they wanted banned.The predominantly Muslim country appears to be steering people away from both western and former Soviet cultural traditions. To me this is something that should not be done because its taking away peoples rights to listen to whatever they want. But also I understand this is a public bus and many people dont want to hear that type of music. I would not play it in the bus but I wont ban it either. Overall this is legit from BBC News and many people are trying to be against this.
A new invention is made with the 3D Printed Music Box. This is actually a pretty small but cool piece if your a music freak. The good thing about this piece, is that is small and pretty decent with sound. The bad would be that it might be real fragile but overall is a good idea to create. My opinion is I would never want this because even tho is a cool item I feel like I will never use this.
In the article their talking about how Google is planning to downgrade some piracy sites allowing users to download music. Some artist are against this and thats why the music industry is not so convience with Googles ideas.
